Recently on Twitter I’ve had a nice trickle of new followers, including someone by the name of @retroga_me. I noticed that he does a few Youtube videos called Massive-DMG, and I giggled a little saying “Heh, just like DMG-01“. But it turns out that this gentleman, just like myself, is a huge GameBoy fan with a huge GameBoy game collection!

Oh but that’s not all! Continue reading

Nintendo E3 Rumour time!

Nintendo-Digital-Event

E3 will be next week, and to be honest I’m not too excited about it. If there’s anything to be excited about, I don’t know about it yet. However Twitter user @9_volt88 posted a rather interesting image…

There’s still PS2 development out there!?

Yeah… I had no idea about this, I found this tweet from @GamesAsylum and it looks like Konami still makes games for the ol’ faithful PS2! That’s crazy considering we’re in weeks of the PS4 launch!

 

PS2GameIn2013

This is no lie Gentlemen, this is real! Pro Evo 2014 for PS2!

So crazy! Could this be the REAL final game for the PS2?! Or are there anyone else out there STILL making games for the PS2 that we have no idea about!?

Get Ikaruga on Steam Now!!!

32680

Oh man, when I got home from work today, I skimmed through my tweets and I found this tweet…

 

Now granted, that tweet is in French, but I can clearly make out the words “Ikaruga” and “Steam Green Light”. So I clicked on the link, that was all in French; if you can’t tell already I can barely read any French at all… So I shuffled through the page to see if there was a link to steam, and there it is!

Business card sample from the printers.

Oh yes! With RetroRevival in a week’s time, I have to get ready to physically spam the blog as much as I can! So what’s the plan? The plan in business cards!

So yeah, I received my sample card from the printers today, and it looks awesome! Not to mention that I have a pair of shirts being printed too, though I won’t be able to see those until Wednesday. I just can’t wait for next week! 😀

Sim City Blues…

Yeah… Some how I didn’t read into this until today. But EA has been having issues with their Sim City servers…

Launching #SimCity is pretty sweet. Literally! Check out this cake from @charmcitycakesw sent by a generous fan. Aww! twitter.com/simcity/status…
— SimCity (@simcity) March 5, 2013

We’re making changes to prevent further issues, and are confident that Origin will be stable for international launches later this week.
— Origin (@OriginInsider) March 5, 2013

Due to the high demand for SimCity, Origin has experienced delays impacting a small percentage of users. We’re working non-stop to resolve.
— Origin (@OriginInsider) March 5, 2013

Some servers are seeing a lot of traffic. Good news: you can choose any of our servers to play on. If one is busy, hop on another to play.
— SimCity (@simcity) March 5, 2013

If your launcher is stuck checking for updates while selecting a #SimCity server, hit up this thread for a fix: bit.ly/XTLIkb
— SimCity (@simcity) March 7, 2013

We are working on the servers 24/7 – expect performance fluctuations. Our fans are our number one priority. Thank you for your patience.
— SimCity (@simcity) March 7, 2013

However… as much as EA appears to be trying to solve the problem, there are a lot of disgruntled American gamers wanting their money back.

Holy crap. RT @matthewrex: Amazon has pulled the digital version of Sim City from their store until it’s fixed: amazon.com/Electronic-Art…
— Nicole Leffel (@devilherdue) March 7, 2013

So yeah, as much as I’m excited to play my copy of Sim City tonight at Midnight, I might be seeing a lot of server issues… Makes you wonder why they hyped up all this DRM, always online, social networking stuff when EA wasn’t prepared for it. Kinda Sucks. You’d think that EA would be prepared for it, but maybe not…

Cross my fingers and hope that I’ll get at least an hour of game time tonight!
